The Galactic Patrol series began in 2008 with the one-shot collaboration Sachie-chan GOOD!! from Akira Toriyama and Masakazu Katsura, published in the debut, May 2008 issue of Jump SQ that April. This was followed up by the duo’s three-chapter collaboration Jiya, serialized in the 2010 #2/3, #4/5, and #6 issues of Weekly Young Jump running from December 2009 to January 2010. Having established certain character designs, universe elements, and even storytelling tropes, Akira Toriyama penned Jaco the Galactic Patrolman by himself, which was originally serialized in the 2013 #33-44 issues of Weekly Shōnen Jump, running from July to September that year.
Sachie-chan and Jiya were collected in the 2014 Katsura-Akira (“Katsura x Akira Short Stories”), while Jaco the Galactic Patrolman also received its own collected edition in 2014 (in fact, both were released on the same day: 04 April 2014). A final epilogue chapter (“Dragon Ball Minus”) was published in the Jaco the Galactic Patrolman collected edition.
Beginning in November 2018 with the series’ 42nd chapter in the January 2019 issue of V-Jump, Toyotarō began a new “Galactic Patrol Prisoner” arc in his Dragon Ball Super manga. Whereas all previous Galactic Patrol entries told unique stories independent of other works, Toyotarō’s arc maintains continuity with Jaco the Galactic Patrolman and Dragon Ball as a whole.
